V. GOD AND PROFESSOR MANSEL WITHHAMILTONTHUSROUTED,Mill turns to meet Mansel's application of the philosophy of the conditioned to religious thought. Neither Mill's attack nor Mansel's response stands out as a model of dispassionate and impersonal inquiry. Mill all but accuses the clergy of being under a professional obligation to talk nonsense (104), and Mansel replies in kind. 46Mill opens his assault by paying Mansel a backhanded compliment: "Clearness and explicitness of statement being in the number of Mr.
